WVU Intends To Sue Its Way Out Of Big East

And now we know how West Virginia intends to escape the Big East for the Big 12 by next July — they’re going to sue their way out.

Big East commissioner John Marinatto wrote in an email to Big East presidents today that “we have been advised by West Virginia league council that the University is filing suit against the Big East Conference today — presumably to get relief from the withdrawal provision contained in our bylaws.”

The Big East is trying to keep WVU in the league through June of 2014.

The school claims in its suit that:


“The denigration of the Big East football conference is a direct and proximate result of the ineffective leadership and breach of fiduciary duties to the football schools by the Big East Conference and its Commissioner.

The Big East and its Commissioner failed to take proactive measures to maintain let alone enhance, the level of competition for the Big East football schools.”


For those who haven’t been keeping up with all this, the sooner WVU can join the Big 12, the quicker it’s believed Missouri can leave that league and join the SEC.
